known, the retirement of vice president kevin martin and the retirement of our paralegal, steve johnson. that most recently happened two weeks ago. we are definitely going to fill the void that steve has left, i hope to fill the void and fill the shoes of kevin martin. we know it's a lot to ask but i can assure you that president delanus and i will make every effort to work with the chief as we have done since being on the executive board of the poa for the last 9 years. but before i do i want to acknowledge kevin martin who has 28 years of service not just with the san francisco police department but the san francisco sheriff's department and especially acknowledge steve johnson, who joined the san francisco police department in 1971, served 30 years and since that time has worked tirelessly along with kevin for the rights of our members and he has worked with every commissioner here. he's going to be a big loss to the poa, he wanted to be here tonight, he could not make it. he is in good health and spirits but i do have letters to each one of the commissioners on behalf of steve.

. there are too many issues at that lake. that steve ritchie can't deal with. i am not interested any more in the mou. i am not interested in the $2 million i helped get for the bond. i am not interested in the watershed report. i am not interested in site planning. but i will stay involved in trying to keep the lake level up and the water quality better. we are now at 22-24 feet versus 10-12 feet heading towards a mud flat. let's keep working on it. >> mr. collin. >> good evening, i am tim colin. i am going on 13 years of volunteerism at lake merced. and the good news is that puc staff deserves enormous credit for the improved water quality. and the levels sustained. that's the good news for lake merced. as far as the future as how it's managed as a resource. i am confused. and i am not sure what to say. it was my understanding that supervisor elsbernd asked that an mou be negotiated between this agency and rec and park, and that was five years ago. in 2007. i am mystified what would prevent two agencies from implementing a simple mou of who has management over lake merced. i don't know h

of all i want to thank steve ritchie, i know how full your plate is. and i know how long you have been working on this, and how complicated it is in some ways. and in some ways not that complicated. but i know how much effort you put in. and i want to thank but for the lake merced task force, but for all of you coming and keeping us on point on this. and reminding us the history and value of this important asset of the puc's. and i am also discouraged that no one from rec and park is here. because i feel like they should be. it's an important conversation and we are trying to get a common understanding if not relationship going with regards to this site. to keep on a big-picture view. there are several assets that the puc, parks and real estate that the puc owns that rec and park manages. and i don't know if we have, maybe this is a conversation for a later time. mous for each individual parcel. or an overarching mou, that we are the owners and you are the managers, and you do recreation and we don't. but i think it's something that we should consider if we don't have individuals or an

inspector steve has been on the site and he can quickly give you a running list of the things that are ongoing. >> well, not ongoing, but what's left to do as of now. >> sure, 24th street, number of violations about roof leaks, electric heaters installed in six units without permits. window sashes in disrepair. missing handrails or handrails installed improperly. and the roofing, there's several layers of roof. i haven't been up in a roof. i have some pictures. there's going to be at least three layers in certain areas. there's probably four or five or -- and the composition of the roofing is so worn out that it's actually frayed. so, and there are no permits forever having reroofed. so, i would expect that the original roof, the wood shingle roof is there. and, again, there's at least three layers of roof and i would guess more like four or five. >> through the chair, inspector, when you itemized those items, they're not huge dollar amount items in the picture of -- >> that's right. the roofing is certainly -- >> probably the highest. yeah. so, they're not really high. the ot

. >> good evening. my name's steve and i'm a passionate cyclist as well as a father living on scott and fell. and the reason this needs an environmental impact report is because already, the environment has become hostile. because all the neighbors and business owners know i'm a cyclist i hear every day the grievances how this is a serious negative impact on their lives, on the ability to live in the neighborhood, not only for customers and parking, but for dealing with picking up kids, dealing with even environmental reasons like sound. my house now used to have cars parked out there, they were a nice buffer, now there's a ricochet of a wall blasting on my window. i think i'll stick with the environmental issues because there's a better plan -- i mean the other plans were drawn up to benefit cyclists. i'm a cyclist -- cycling first. this is a four lane freeway, cars going faster, they're using ann and scott on fell cars flip-flop immediately. we have 10 cars -- it's probably the craziest design i've ever seen and by far not safer than the way it was previously. i please hope you give some e

that perhaps you can indicate what the language is. >> yes, we have steve general manager from water. the language would not put the money in the controller's reserve but basically amounts in excess of $100,000 would be on reserve at the budget committee. so, we would come back rather than on quarterly reports, we would just come back for expenditure of funds in excess of $100,000. that we agree is probably the simplest mechanism to put in place for all concerned, give you guys the authority to control it. make it administratively easy for us to do that. >> thank you. to the budget analyst, in terms of the 100,000, remind me why there is the threshold recommended at 100,000. >> we recommended that threshold to be consistent with the grant approval, accept and extend threshold. >> okay. so, colleagues, we have with recommended change and i'll read that into the record. so, let's see. on page 1 lines 9 and 10, which is consistent with the version that you have before you, the language should have "and placing various mitigation funds on reserve with the board of supervisors." and we wo
